If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.
The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.
All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.
Tap the “matches” option to browse, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
If you want the best possible experience, then there’s Grindr Unlimited, which has no limit on the number of people you can see, lets you see who’s viewed your profile, and browse in Incognito mode.
That will set you back a month though, so it’s quite the investment.
You can favorite people if you want to speak to them later or just really like them, and you can even browse other locations — perfect if you’re heading somewhere else for the weekend, or want to make some new friends before a big move.
It’s easy to message people — just tap the messaging icon on their profile — and there are large, high-quality pictures too, so you have a good idea of who you’re meeting up with.
You can answer questions, giving both your answer and what you’d like your potential match’s answer to be — this creates a percentile score for users that reflects compatibility.
